    A nice little TGY for the price

The Huang Dan cultivar is sometimes called Huang Jin Gui (Yellow Golden Osmanthus) and is an early sprouting tea cultivar used to make Tie Guan Yin and other teas. It is a very fragrant variety with a slightly more golden yellow appearance compared with Greener cultivars of Tie Guan Yin.

The beauty of this tea is its sweetness in fragrance and taste making it a really easy-drinking tea. The Huang Dan cultivar has all of the bright and flowery notes of a Tie Guan Yin without hardly any of the sourness which is associated with this type of Oolong. It makes for a very friendly tea and the perfect tea to entice people into the world of Oolongs.

Huang Dan is an affordable variety of tea, so you can enjoy the bouquet of aromatics of Tie Guan every day without much expense compared with other Fujian Oolongs.
